Plurality in how we believe and behave is one of our missions here at ESCP Business School. Our sense of community and school spirit help foster this important aspect of who we are.
Our school’s various extracurricular activities and initiatives range from political discussions and sports tournaments to social, cultural, and networking events and can be a source of growth and inspiration for students outside of the classroom.
Participating in any of these activities can help students learn to manage/work in a team, improve decision-making, cope with responsibilities, manage their time effectively, develop managerial skills, and more. Here are some extracurricular activities aimed at developing your full potential while studying at ESCP Business School.
The Regatta Is one of the Extracurricular Activities that Stands out for Teamwork and Networking
Each year, the ESCP Regatta allows students to challenge themselves in new ways and apply their teamwork and leadership skills to a practical setting.
Launched in May 2007, the annual ESCP Regatta brings together students of various programmes, from all six of our campuses, to join forces on a common challenge. This sports event provides a unique opportunity to strengthen our sense of community while allowing students to evolve further their decision-making, leadership, and teamwork skills.
The event is a significant one in ESCP’s overall calendar and one that really allows students to expand their network by connecting with their peers. It serves as an invaluable bonding experience for participants, helping to foster connection.
In September 2022, the 14th edition of the ESCP Regatta saw nearly 40 yachts – more than 300 participants representing 34 different nationalities – sailing by the beautiful Italian shores of Ischia in the Gulf of Naples, Italy.
The Junior Enterprise Association Helps Students Put Business Knowledge into Practice
The ESCP Conseil, also known as its Junior Enterprise, is a student-run consulting firm that collaborates with several corporate clients on various business solutions and ventures.
Being a part of this association offers students an opportunity to further expand their professional development by working on various projects and helping to provide organisations with productive, personalised solutions to issues they may have, including market studies, business plans, mystery shopping, and satisfaction inquiries.
Students with a business-focused mindset will be able to help entrepreneurs, freelancers, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), or groups of the CAC 40 index meet their goals.
Management Science College Students May Also Attend the Model United Nations
For those with a strong interest in global politics and international relations, this event is the best extracurricular opportunity for a firsthand experience in these fields.
The annual National Model United Nations (NMUN) Conference in New York City gives students working toward their Bachelor in Management (BSc) at ESCP Business School a unique opportunity to participate in the world’s largest United Nations simulation, along with more than 5,000 students from various universities worldwide.
Held at the UN’s headquarters, the event sees students represent different countries to replicate the real-world United Nations structure. Students at ESCP’s London Campus also take part in the annual Yes to UN conference, which provides the chance to sharpen their skills in negotiating prior to the event in New York.
Clubs and Societies Help Students Find their True Calling
When we choose a course of study, we often have only a vague idea of what we would like to do in our professional life. Especially those enrolled in a Bachelor have not yet had the opportunity to measure themselves with the world of work and hence understand in which field they can express their full potential.
The more than 50 Clubs and Societies managed by ESCP students in the various campuses are, therefore, an excellent ‘extracurricular gym’, where you can get to know yourself better and really put your passions to the test.
From fashion to sustainability, clubs and societies unite students from different courses of study based on their interests. And very often, they decide to invest their free time in charitable purposes, as in the case of the SPF Paris Society, founded by Bachelor in Management (BSc) students to support children’s education in South America and Asia.
